Returning residents - Spring 2015

Between term accommodations

Find a place to stay with our local accommodations list - perfect for those needing extra time, have family or friends visiting, or do not quality for an extension/early arrival.

Staying in the same room?

If you're returning to the same room, it's not necessary to remove your belongings or to return keys. We do suggest that you take home any valuables.

Changing rooms/residence building?

If you are not returning to the same room next term, an inspection will take place to assess standards of cleanliness. Items left behind will be disposed of which will also result in a charge to your account.

Moving rooms/residence storage options

Are you an international, out-of-province, or student with a postal code beginning with K or P? You may submit a storage request to make arrangements for your belongings between terms. If you do not meet the storage request criteria, check out Store Your Dorm for short term storage options.


Moving off-campus

If your room does not pass the inspection you will be held financially responsible for any cleaning or repairs. 

If you are not returning to residence, an inspection will take place to assess standards of cleanliness. When you move out, your room is expected to be in the same condition as it was when you moved in.

  • Items left behind will be disposed of which will also result in a charge to your account. Be sure to remove all your personal belongings. 

  • Failure to return your keys will result in a $50 charge to pay for a lock change.
